Pack 264 has been supporting the youth of Crosby since 1974 through the ongoing support of the Crosby United Methodist Church. We thank them for this opportunity to serve our community as this would not be possible without them.
The Boy Scouts of America have multiple programs designed to enrich youth while preparing them to tackle life’s challenges.
- Pack 264 is “Cub Scouts” and is designed for youth between the ages 5 and 10 which is then split between multiple ranks: Lions, Tigers, Wolves, Bears, and Webelos. Each rank is divided into dens, led by an adult Den Leader, and separated between boys and girls. The Den Leaders pull support from each other, the Cubmaster, and, most importantly, the parents. This program sets the stage for advancement to Troop so they may continue their path to Eagle Rank.
- Troop 264 is “Scouts” and is geared towards youth between the ages 11 and 18. The Scouts lead the unit themselves while there is an adult Scoutmaster that ensures they are focused and advancing towards their Eagle Rank.
In Cub Scouting, you and your family join in on the program with your child, and
you will help them along the way. Cub Scouts have a different handbook at each grade
level, with adventures that are age-appropriate for their developmental level. As your
child advances through these books by working on adventures, they will earn badges
and other recognition that they wear on their uniform. As your child grows in Cub
Scouting, your role will change with them, from hands-on involvement to guiding and
coaching. Your child’s success in Cub Scouting depends on you!
These meetings are when your Cub Scout meets with their Den leader and participates in age appropriate lessons with other Cub Scouts of the same rank. Lesson completions in den meetings lead to awards presented at the Pack meetings. Den meetings are held at the Crosby United Methodist Church located at 1334 Runneburg Road. Meetings are every Tuesday at 6:30 P.M. and last approximately 1 hour. *If you miss a Den meeting, much of the curriculum for Cub Scouts can be completed at home. Get with your Den leader for more information.
Pack Meeting:These meetings are for everyone in the Pack. Family and Friends are welcome too. The pack meeting is when your Cub Scout is recognized for their hard work during den meetings. Pack meetings are held on the 1st Tuesday of each month. Pack Meetings start at 6:30 P.M. at the Crosby Methodist Church. There will be no den meetings on the night of our pack meeting.
Dress codes for meetings:
All Scouts are expected to be wearing their Class A shirt, tucked in and wearing their Scout Belt for Pack meetings. Jeans and closed toe shoes are encouraged. Scouts in proper uniform at Pack meetings will receive a raffle ticket for a prize given away at the end of the meeting. Cub Scouts are encouraged to wear the same uniform for Den meetings, but will be at the Den Leader’s discretion based on the den activity.
